Eight is great!

This was his favorite present from the MawMaw and PawPaw.  He has been playing it as much as I will let him since yesterday, when he got it.

Now we have his baptism to look forward to in a couple of weeks!

Halloween 2010

This year was so fun for Halloween the boys picked their own costumes and totally OWNED them.

Brandon was a Vampire for the 2nd year in a row. I think he might have chose that costume because he knows how much I LOVE vampires.

Carson was the mighty Spiderman! He REALLY wanted to be Batman, but I couldn't find a Batman costume to save my life, so he decided Spiderman would be good enough, plus he LOVED the muscles.

Our ward had a Carnival, here is Carson at the fish pond.....

.....And Brandon at the donut eating booth.

He worked SO hard to eat that darn donut with no hands...

Carson with his little buddy Dallen from down the street, it was so funny when they saw each other, they were so excited they were dressed the same.

Brandon and his friend Aiden dressed the same too....

Don't think I didn't dress up haha....My good friend Sandy and me, she was an Angle and I was a Devil. NO it was NOT planned, just FUNNY!

Echelon Edge

So I had a very good friend tell me to update my here goes:
Life will be taking a pretty big turn for us in the next few weeks, I will be starting school AGAIN, full time this time (Mon-Sat 9am-5pm)!!! I know there are some of you out there, saying 'What the heck? Again?!?' YES, my friends, again!
I am going to a school called Echelon Edge, Academy of Hair, Skin and Nails

YES, I am going back to beauty, before ya'll say 'THAT'S CRAZY' hear me out. I DID go to school to do nails when I was 20 (14 years ago aaaahhhhh) and I have always felt like I did it 'wrong' the first time around, and as with most things in my life, I learn the hard way. So in my search to find a passion for something I kept coming back to this.  So I did it! I enrolled in the Cosmetology program at Echelon Edge Academy after a THOROUGH search of about 7 different schools. I am SO excited to do it right this time. After I'm done with the Cosmetology program (which take 12 months) I will be enrolling into the 'Medical Esthetics' program (an additional 4 moths).  So.....I will be needing people to volunteer to be models for ALL kinds of things, from getting nails done, to getting your hair cut and/or colored, from a simple facial to laser hair removal.
I am blessed to have a VERY supportive husband. I also have in-laws (who live with us) willing to watch my kids full time for the next 16months, I wouldn't be able to do it with out them.
